    Default Whats wrong?!?

    So I am practicing honing with some Jnats, and this morning was test shave time.

    I grabbed 2 blades off the bench, staggered uncoffee-nated up the stairs to the shower, and both blades gave me rough, uncomfortable, no so close shaves.

    What happened?

    (points for imagination, prize for the first correct guess)

    Given my signature, I must say the culprit is most likely a distinct lack of caffeine. Besides, I have no experience with Jnats as Glen told me to stay away from them for a while (he helped me immensely with my HAD disability).
    Advisable to before the shave

    My go to answer for a rough shave is always about the low grits. The foundation to every great edge is a perfect apex from heel to toe.
    I am pretty sure that you already know and likely already checked that with a loupe.
    After that I am tapped for personal experience.
    JNats are all about the slurry. If you did not work your slurry long enough it may have been too coarse for the finish.
    You could have mixed your naggurra stones up and used the wrong one last.

    You tried shaving with the spine of the razor instead of the cutting edge maybe?
    - One thing is for sure....nothing.

    now that's funny,, my guess is you grabbed a Gold Dollar by mistake after honing it on a rock outside in your driveway
    Ever wonder why you never see a motorcycle in front of a Shrinks office? ,,,,, then you have never ridden one "

    Uncaffinated!!!! My guess is you grabbed the wrong 2 blades off the bench. Next time grabbed the opnes you honed not those waiting to be honed. And never EVER shave before you caffinate!
